Your turn! Favorite Disney song? How many states have you lived in? Are you a fan of old movies? What's on your "Someday" list?


  1. I'd love to see the Northern Lights too!

    Love love love the watermelon TOMS.

  2. I love this so much! I've only lived in Kansas, but we'll see what the future holds. You never know. My favorite Disney song... oh gosh. I love any of them where a princess is doing something domestic. LOL That's so weird, but I've noticed the trend. Nightingale and When Will my Life Begin?, and Whistle While You Work. ahhah I love anything from Sleeping Beauty. I want to see the Northern Lights and ride in a hot air balloon too. Telluride looks awesome for that! & you guys are in the right state for that! I don't watch enough old movies, but I do enjoy them. I don't know that I could watch them over and over. But that could be said for most movies I think. XO - Alexandra

    Simply Alexandra: My Favorite Things

  3. I love The Philadelphia Story and Roman Holiday :) I kind of want to borrow this! I'd take out the state question though because I've only lived in Ohio (and India for a month). I want to see the Northern Lights, too!!
    I don't know what my favorite Disney song is... Maybe Can't Wait to be King (The Lion King) or something from Hercules...

  4. I thought I commented but it is gone - so if I did ignore this one lol.
    Love those matching TOMS - so perfect! I love watermelon anything.
    hakuna matata is my favourite Disney song for sure.
    What was your favourite state to live in?
    I want to do a road trip east - US or Canada or both :) Going on a yoga retreat was one of the best things I have ever done for myself :)

  5. I love your matching shoes -- that is so sweet! Quirky, introverted, and tired are probably 3 of the top words I'd use to describe myself too - ha!

  6. Cute post! I've only lived in PA and TX. I first heard " It happened on night" on the Sex and the city movie...haha. Now that it made your top list I am curious as to what it's about. What is it about?

  7. I have lived in zero states! ;) But 3 provinces! Haha. I love the entire The Lion King soundtrack. I still own it on CD from way back in the day. Love the matching Toms!

  8. This is so fun-- Prince Ali is definitely one of my favorite Disney songs too, and now it's stuck in my head ;) haha. I would love to see the northern lights and learn how to can someday!
